Canada will not lift sanctions from Russia until the full implementation of Minsk agreements by the Kremlin. This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada Chrystia Freeland, reports Ukrinform.

"We will continue to put pressure on Russia, including with the help of existing sanctions, until the Russian Federation fully fulfills its obligations under the Minsk agreements and uses its influence on separatists to force them to fulfill their obligations," said Freeland.

According to her, the ultimate goal of Canadian support of Ukraine is to increase its security, stability and prosperity.

"We will continue to build on a solid foundation, which we laid with Ukraine, a rich and mutually beneficial partnership based on common values and dedication to regional and international security," the minister stressed.
